commented on SL Letter of the Day: Give Up Already
I don't see why people think the wife is any more truthful than the husband. Anyone who can hide an intimate relationship for three years is good at lying and doesn't mind doing it.
Time will tell whether they keep on lying to each other, because the lies are the part they like.
I was thinking the same thing. We've got two proven liars here. Furthermore, I thought to myself, a three-year relationship is what one of these liars is admitting to ... I wonder what the reality is.

@80: I feel like the theoretical apparatus that will make you coherent to me is always just out of reach. Some kind of lens that resolves the smears and spatters into points and lines. I suspect that we would agree about many things, but I can't always tell. I am pretty confident, though, that I know what you would identify as my obstacle to understanding.

@9: Yes. I've always felt that people who are planning killing sprees followed by suicide should just start with themselves, you know, as a limited test. If the trial phase is successful, they can then expand the project to their heart's content.
